The Citizens, who are expected to be in the market for a new striker at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, have been linked with the 27-year-old Inter Milan striker as a potential replacement for the club’s all-time leading goal scorer Sergio Aguero.
The Athletic reported last month that City were seriously considering a summer move for Lukaku, two years after he left bitter rivals United to join Inter in a £74 million deal.
Latest report from Fc Inter News as relayed by Sport Witness claimed Pep Guardiola’s side have ‘openly expressed an interest’ in the 27-year-old.
But Cassano can’t understand why Romelu Lukaku would leave Inter Milan for Manchester City, telling Bobo TV on Twitch the Belgian superstar wouldn’t fit in under Pep Guardiola.
“If Guardiola takes him, I won’t support him any more. What does Lukaku have to do with (Pep’s) idea of the game?” Cassano siad.
The €90m-rated star is one of the names on City’s short list, along with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, Tottenham’s Harry Kane, and Southampton’s Danny Ings amongst others.
